Send a fax using monitor dialing
When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial tones, telephone prompts, or other
sounds through the speakers on the printer. This enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as
well as control the pace of your dialing.
TIP: If you are using a calling card and do not enter your PIN fast enough, the printer might start
sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling card service. If
this is the case, you can create a phone book contact to store the PIN for your calling card. For more
information, see Set up phone book contacts on page 60.
NOTE:
Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.

Send a fax from memory
You can scan a black-and-white fax into memory and then send the fax from memory. This feature is
useful if the fax number you are trying to reach is busy or temporarily unavailable. The printer scans
the originals into memory and sends them once it is able to connect to the receiving fax machine.
After the printer scans the pages into memory, you can immediately remove the originals from the
document feeder tray or scanner glass.

Send a fax in Error Correction Mode
Error Correction Mode (ECM) prevents loss of data due to poor phone lines by detecting errors that
occur during transmission and automatically requesting retransmission of the erroneous portion.
Phone charges are unaffected, or might even be reduced, on good phone lines. On poor phone lines,
ECM increases sending time and phone charges, but sends the data much more reliably. The default
setting is On. Turn ECM off only if it increases phone charges substantially, and if you can accept
poorer quality in exchange for reduced charges.
If you turn ECM off:

●
The quality and transmission speed of faxes you send and receive are affected.
●
The Fax Speed is automatically set to Medium.
●
You can no longer send or receive faxes in color.

You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must
receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the printer
automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified
by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a Legal-size or larger fax and the printer is not currently set to use Legal-size paper, the
printer reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic
Reduction feature, the printer prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the printer memory
until the copying finishes.

Set up backup fax
Depending on your preference and security requirements, you can set up the printer to store all the
faxes it receives, only the faxes it receives while the printer is in an error condition, or none of the
faxes it receives.

From the printer control panel display, touch Setup.
2.
Touch Fax Setup.
3.
Touch Preferences.
4.
Touch Backup Fax Reception.
5.
Touch the required setting.
On
The default setting. When Backup fax is On, the printer stores all received faxes in
memory. This enables you to reprint up to 30 of the most recently printed faxes if they are
still saved in memory.
NOTE: When printer memory is low, it overwrites the oldest, printed faxes as it receives
new faxes. If the memory becomes full of unprinted faxes, the printer stops answering
incoming fax calls.
NOTE: If you receive a fax that is too large, such as a very detailed color photo, it might
not be stored in memory due to memory limitations.
On Error Only
Causes the printer to store faxes in memory only if an error condition exists that prevents
the printer from printing the faxes (for example, if the printer runs out of paper). The printer
continues to store incoming faxes as long as there is memory available. (If the memory
becomes full, the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.) When the error condition is
resolved, the faxes stored in memory print automatically, and then they are deleted from
memory.
Off
Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to turn off Backup fax for
security purposes. If an error condition occurs that prevents the printer from printing (for
example, the printer runs out of paper), the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.
Reprint received faxes from memory
The received faxes that are not printed out are stored in memory.
NOTE: After the memory becomes full, the printer cannot receive the new fax until you print or
delete the faxes from memory. You might also want to delete the faxes in memory for security or
privacy purposes.
Depending on the sizes of the faxes in memory, you can reprint up to 30 of the most recently printed
faxes, if they are still in memory. For example, you might need to reprint your faxes if you lost the
copy of your last printout.

Forward faxes to another number
You can set up the printer to forward your faxes to another fax number. All faxes are forwarded in
black and white, regardless of how they were originally sent.
HP recommends that you verify the number you are forwarding to is a working fax line. Send a test
fax to make sure the fax machine is able to receive your forwarded faxes.

received faxes, it also prints an error report.
6.
At the prompt, enter the number of the fax machine intended to receive the forwarded faxes, and
then touch Done. Enter the required information for each of the following prompts: start date,
start time, end date, and end time.

Fax forwarding is activated. Touch OK to confirm.
If the printer loses power when fax forwarding is set up, it saves the fax forwarding setting and
phone number. When the power is restored to the printer, the fax forwarding setting is still On.
NOTE: You can cancel fax forwarding by selecting Off from the Fax Forwarding menu.
Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
The Automatic Reduction setting determines what the printer does if it receives a fax that is too large
for the loaded paper size. This setting is turned on by default, so the image of the incoming fax is
reduced to fit on one page, if possible. If this feature is turned off, information that does not fit on the
first page is printed on a second page. Automatic Reduction is useful when you receive a Legal-size
fax and Letter-size paper is loaded in the main tray.

Block unwanted fax numbers
If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block specific fax
numbers so the printer does not receive faxes received from those numbers. When an incoming fax
call is received, the printer compares the number to the list of junk fax numbers to determine if the call
should be blocked. If the number matches a number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not
received. (The maximum number of fax numbers you can block varies by model.)
NOTE: This feature is not supported in all countries/regions. If it is not supported in your country/
region, Junk Fax Blocking does not appear in the Preferences menu.
NOTE: If no phone numbers are added in the Caller ID list, it is assumed that you are not
subscribed to a Caller ID service.
You can block specific fax numbers by adding them to the junk fax list, unblock these numbers by

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before incoming calls
are automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the same phone line
as the printer, because you want the answering machine to answer the phone before the printer does.
The number of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of rings to answer
for the answering machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the
maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup,
the answering machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer detects fax
tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the incoming
message.

Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring
Many phone companies offer a distinctive ring feature that allows you to have several phone numbers
on one phone line. When you subscribe to this service, each number is assigned a different ring
pattern. You can set up the printer to answer incoming calls that have a specific ring pattern.
If you connect the printer to a line with distinctive ring, have your telephone company assign one ring
pattern to voice calls and another ring pattern to fax calls. HP recommends that you request double or
triple rings for a fax number. When the printer detects the specified ring pattern, it answers the call
and receives the fax.
TIP: You can also use the Ring Pattern Detection feature in the printer control panel to set
distinctive ring. With this feature, the printer recognizes and records the ring pattern of an incoming
call and, based on this call, automatically determines the distinctive ring pattern assigned by your
telephone company to fax calls.
If you do not have a distinctive ring service, use the default ring pattern, which is All Rings.
NOTE:
The printer cannot receive faxes when the main phone number is off the hook.

Many telephone companies provide their customers with digital phone services, such as the following:
●
DSL: A Digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your telephone company. (DSL might be
called ADSL in your country/region.)
●
PBX: A private branch exchange (PBX) phone system.
●
ISDN: An integrated services digital network (ISDN) system.
●
FoIP: A low-cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your printer by
using the Internet. This method is called Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP).
For more information, see Fax over Internet Protocol on page 68.
HP printers are designed specifically for use with traditional analog phone services. If you are in
a digital phone environment (such as DSL/ADSL, PBX, or ISDN), you might need to use digital-toanalog filters or converters when setting up the printer for faxing.
NOTE: HP does not guarantee that the printer will be compatible with all digital service lines or
providers, in all digital environments, or with all digital-to-analog converters. It is always
recommended that you discuss with the telephone company directly for the correct setup options
based on their line services provided.

Fax over Internet Protocol
You might be able to subscribe to a low cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes
with your printer by using the Internet. This method is called Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP).
You probably use a FoIP service (provided by your telephone company) when you:
●
Dial a special access code along with the fax number.
●
Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone ports for the
fax connection.
NOTE: You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port labeled "1LINE" on the printer. This means that your connection to the Internet must be done either through
a converter box (which supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections) or your telephone
company.
TIP: Support for traditional fax transmission over any Internet protocol telephone systems are often
limited. If you experience problems faxing, try using a slower fax speed or disabling the fax errorcorrection mode (ECM). However, if you turn off ECM, you cannot send and receive color faxes.
For more information about changing the fax speed, see Set the fax speed on page 66. For more
information about using ECM, see Send a fax in Error Correction Mode on page 52.
If you have questions about Internet faxing, contact your Internet faxing services support department
or your local service provider for further assistance.

Use reports
You can set up the printer to print error reports and confirmation reports automatically for each fax
you send and receive. You can also manually print system reports as required; these reports provide
useful system information about the printer.
By default, the printer is set to print a report only if there is a problem sending or receiving a fax.
A confirmation message that indicates whether a fax was successfully sent appears briefly on the
control panel display after each transaction.
NOTE: If the reports are not legible, you can check the estimated ink levels from the control panel or
the HP software. For more information, see Check the estimated ink levels on page 74.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you
receive a low-ink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing
delays. You do not need to replace the ink cartridges until the print quality becomes unacceptable.
NOTE: Ensure that the printheads and ink cartridges are in good conditions and installed properly.
For more information, see Work with cartridges on page 73.

Cartridge warranty information
The HP cartridge warranty is applicable when the cartridge is used in its designated HP printing
device. This warranty does not cover HP ink cartridges that have been refilled, remanufactured,
refurbished, misused, or tampered with.

Anonymous usage information storage
The HP cartridges used with this printer contain a memory chip that assists in the operation of the
printer. In addition, this memory chip stores a limited set of anonymous information about the usage
of the printer, which might include the following: the number of pages printed using the cartridge, the
page coverage, frequency of printing, and the printing modes used.
This information helps HP design future printers to meet our customers' printing needs. The data
collected from the cartridge memory chip does not contain information that can be used to identify a
customer or user of the cartridge or their printer.
HP collects a sampling of the memory chips from cartridges returned to HP's free return and recycling
program (HP Planet Partners: www.hp.com/recycle). The memory chips from this sampling are read
and studied in order to improve future HP printers. HP partners who assist in recycling this cartridge
might have access to this data, as well.
Any third party possessing the cartridge might have access to the anonymous information on the
memory chip. If you prefer to not allow access to this information, you can render the chip inoperable.
However, after you render the memory chip inoperable, the cartridge cannot be used in an HP printer.
If you are concerned about providing this anonymous information, you can make this information
inaccessible by turning off the memory chip's ability to collect the printer's usage information.
To disable the usage information function
1.
From the printer control panel, touch Setup.
2.
Touch Preferences.
3.
Flick to the end of the option list and switch off the Automatically Send Anonymous Data and
Store Anonymous Usage Information options.

Tips for working with cartridges
Use the following tips to work with cartridges:
ENWW
●
To protect the cartridges from drying out, always turn the printer off using the On button, and
wait until the On button light goes out.
●
Do not open or untape cartridges until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the
cartridges reduces ink evaporation.
●
Insert the cartridges into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each cartridge to the color
and icon for each slot. Make sure the cartridges snap into place.
●
Alignment is automatic after new cartridge installation. Alignment can also help later, in cases of
blurred or jagged lines. See Fix print quality issues on page 104 for more information.
●
When the Estimated Ink Levels screen shows one or both cartridges in a low state, consider
getting replacement cartridges to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace the
cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable. See Replace the cartridges on page 75 for
more information.
●
If you remove a cartridge from the printer for any reason, try to replace it again as soon as
possible. Outside of the printer, if unprotected, cartridges begin to dry out.

Ensure that paper loaded in the input tray lays flat and the edges are not bent or torn.
●
Do not place too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum
number of sheets allowed in the document feeder, see Specifications on page 129.
●
Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the input tray; the entire stack of paper
in the input tray must be the same size and type.
●
Adjust the paper-width guides in the input tray to fit snugly against all paper. Make sure the
paper-width guides do not bend the paper in the input tray.
●
Do not force paper too far inside the input tray.
●
If you are printing on both sides of a page, do not print highly saturated images on light weight
paper.
●
Use paper types that are recommended for the printer. For more information, see Paper basics
on page 8.
●
If the printer is about to run out of paper, allow the printer to run out of paper first, and then add
paper. Do not load paper when the printer is printing.

●
You are using the wrong type of phone cord. Make sure you are using the 2-wire phone cord
that came with the printer to connect the printer to your phone line. If the phone cord that came
with the printer is not long enough, you can use a longer phone cord to extend the length. You
can purchase the cord at an electronics store that carries phone accessories.
●
Other equipment that uses the same phone line as the printer might be in use. Make sure
extension phones (phones on the same phone line, but not connected to the printer) or other
equipment are not in use or off the hook. For example, you cannot use the printer for faxing if an
extension phone is off the hook, or if you are using a computer dial-up modem to send email or
access the Internet.
The printer is having problems sending and receiving faxes
●
Make sure the printer is turned on. Look at the display on the printer. If the display is blank and
(the Power button) light is not lit, the printer is turned off. Make sure the power cord is firmly
(the Power button) to turn on
connected to the printer and plugged into a power outlet. Press
the printer.
After turning on the printer, HP recommends you wait five minutes before sending or receiving
a fax. The printer cannot send or receive faxes while it is initializing after being turned on.

Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack that you are using for
the printer and check for a dial tone. If you do not hear a dial tone, call your local telephone
company for service.
●
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the printer, might be in use. For example,
you cannot use the printer for faxing if an extension phone is off the hook, or if you are using
a computer dial-up modem to send an email or access the Internet.
●
Check to see if another process has caused an error. Check the display or your computer for an
error message providing information about the problem and how to solve it. If there is an error,
the printer cannot send or receive a fax until the error condition is resolved.
●
The phone line connection might be noisy. Phone lines with poor sound quality (noise) can
cause faxing problems. Check the sound quality of the phone line by plugging a phone into the
telephone wall jack and listening for static or other noise. If you hear noise, turn Error Correction
Mode (ECM) off and try faxing again. For information about changing ECM, see Send a fax in
Error Correction Mode on page 52. If the problem persists, contact your telephone company.
●
If you are using a digital subscriber line (DSL) service, make sure that you have a DSL filter
connected or you cannot fax successfully. Click here to go online for more information.
●
Make sure the printer is not connected to a telephone wall jack that is set up for digital phones.
To check if your phone line is digital, connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for
a dial tone. If you do not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for
digital phones.
●
If you are using either a private branch exchange (PBX) or an integrated services digital network
(ISDN) converter/terminal adapter, make sure the printer is connected to the correct port and the
terminal adapter is set to the correct switch type for your country/region, if possible. Click here to
go online for more information.
Fax issues 117
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with a DSL service, the DSL modem might not be
grounded correctly. If the DSL modem is not grounded correctly, it can create noise on the
phone line. Phone lines with poor sound quality (noise) can cause faxing problems. You can
check the sound quality of the phone line by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and
listening for static or other noise. If you hear noise, turn off your DSL modem and completely
remove power for at least 15 minutes. Turn the DSL modem back on and listen to the dial tone
again.
NOTE: You might notice static on the phone line again in the future. If the printer stops sending
and receiving faxes, repeat this process.
If the phone line is still noisy, contact your telephone company. For information on turning your
DSL modem off, contact your DSL provider for support.
●
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is a two-cord
connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the splitter and connecting the
printer directly to the telephone wall jack.
The printer cannot receive faxes, but can send faxes
●
If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure that the Distinctive Ring
feature on the printer is set to All Rings. For more information, see Change the answer ring
pattern for distinctive ring on page 64.
●
If Auto Answer is set to Off, you need to receive faxes manually; otherwise, the printer cannot
receive the fax. For information on receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually
on page 54.
●
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use for fax calls, you must
receive faxes manually, not automatically. This means that you must be available to respond in
person to incoming fax calls. Learn more about setting up the printer when you have a voice mail
service, click here to go online for more information. For information on receiving faxes
manually, see Receive a fax manually on page 54.
●
If you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line with the printer, check to make
sure that the software that came with your modem is not set to receive faxes automatically.
Modems that are set up to receive faxes automatically take over the phone line to receive all
incoming faxes, which prevents the printer from receiving fax calls.
●
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with the printer, you might have one
of the following problems:
◦
Your answering machine might not be set up correctly with the printer.
◦
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the printer to detect fax
tones, and the sending fax machine might disconnect.
◦
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after your outgoing message to
allow the printer to detect fax tones. This problem is most common with digital answering
machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
118 Chapter 9 Solve a problem
ENWW
◦
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try
connecting the answering machine directly to the printer, click here to go online for more
information.
◦
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically. For information on setting up the
printer to receive faxes automatically, see Receive a fax on page 54.
◦
Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of rings than the
answering machine. For more information, see Set the number of rings before answering
on page 64.
◦
Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If faxing is successful
without the answering machine, the answering machine might be causing the problem.
◦
Reconnect the answering machine and record your outgoing message again. Record
a message that is approximately 10 seconds in duration. Speak slowly and at a low volume
when recording your message. Leave at least 5 seconds of silence at the end of the voice
message. There should be no background noise when recording this silent time. Try to
receive a fax again.
NOTE: Some digital answering machines might not retain the recorded silence at the end
of your outgoing message. Play back your outgoing message to check.
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with other types of phone equipment, such as an
answering machine, a computer dial-up modem, or a multi-port switch box, the fax signal level
might be reduced. The signal level can also be reduced if you use a splitter or connect extra
cables to extend the length of your phone. A reduced fax signal can cause problems during fax
reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything except the printer
from the phone line, and then try to receive a fax. If you can receive faxes successfully without
the other equipment, one or more pieces of the other equipment is causing problems; try adding
them back one at a time and receiving a fax each time, until you identify which equipment is
causing the problem.
●
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using a distinctive ring service
through your telephone company), make sure that the Distinctive Ring feature on the printer is
set to match. For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring
on page 64.
The printer cannot send faxes, but can receive faxes
●
The printer might be dialing too fast or too soon. You might need to insert some pauses in the
number sequence. For example, if you need to access an outside line before dialing the phone
number, insert a pause following the access number. If your number is 95555555, and 9
accesses an outside line, you might insert pauses as follows: 9-555-5555. To enter a pause in
the fax number you are typing, touch the * repeatedly, until a dash (-) appears on the display.
You can also send the fax using monitor dialing. This enables you to listen to the phone line as
you dial. You can set the pace of your dialing and respond to prompts as you dial. For more
information, see Send a fax using monitor dialing on page 51.
●
ENWW
The number you entered when sending the fax is not in the proper format or the receiving fax
machine is having problems. To check this, try calling the fax number from a telephone and
listen for fax tones. If you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax machine might not be turned
on or connected, or a voice mail service could be interfering with the recipient's phone line. You
can also ask the recipient to check the receiving fax machine for any problems.

Fax tones are recorded on my answering machine
●
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try
connecting the answering machine directly to the printer, click here to go online for more
information. If you do not connect the answering machine as recommended, fax tones might be
recorded on your answering machine.
●
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically and that the Rings to Answer setting
is correct. The number of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of
rings to answer for the answering machine. If the answering machine and the printer are set to
the same number of rings to answer, both devices answer the call and fax tones are recorded on
the answering machine.
●
Set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the maximum
number of rings supported. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this
setup, the answering machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer
detects fax tones, the printer receives the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine
records the incoming message. For more information, see Set the number of rings before
answering on page 64.
The computer cannot receive faxes (HP Digital Fax)
●
The computer selected to receive faxes is turned off. Make sure the computer selected to
receive faxes is switched on at all times.
●
Different computers are configured for setup and receiving faxes and one of them may be
switched off. If the computer receiving faxes is different from the one used for setup, both
computers should be switched on at all times.
●
HP Digital Fax is not activated or the computer is not configured to receive faxes. Activate HP

Additional fax setup
After completing all the steps in the getting started guide, use the instructions in this section to
complete your fax setup. Keep your getting started guide for later use.
In this section, you learn how to set up the printer so that faxing works successfully with equipment
and services you might already have on the same phone line.
TIP: You can also use the Fax Setup Wizard (Windows) or HP Utility (OS X) to help you quickly set
up some important fax settings such as the answer mode and fax header information. You can
access these tools through the HP software you installed with the printer. After you run these tools,
follow the procedures in this section to complete your fax setup.

Set up faxing (parallel phone systems)
Before you begin setting up the printer for faxing, determine which kind of phone system your country/
region uses. The instructions for fax setup differ depending on whether you have a serial- or paralleltype phone system.
●
If you do not see your country/region listed in the table, you probably have a serial-type phone
system. In a serial-type phone system, the connector type on your shared telephone equipment
(modems, phones, and answering machines) does not allow a physical connection to the "2EXT" port on the printer. Instead, all equipment must be connected at the telephone wall jack.
NOTE: In some countries/regions that use serial-type phone systems, the phone cord that
came with the printer might have an additional wall plug attached to it. This enables you to
connect other telecom devices to the wall jack where you plug in the printer.
You might need to connect the supplied phone cord to the adapter provided for your country/
region.
●
If your country/region is listed in the table, you probably have a parallel-type telephone system.
In a parallel-type phone system, you are able to connect shared telephone equipment to the
phone line by using the "2-EXT" port on the back of the printer.
NOTE: If you have a parallel-type phone system, HP recommends you use the 2-wire phone
cord supplied with the printer to connect it to the telephone wall jack.

Select the correct fax setup for your home or office
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if any) share the same
phone line with the printer. This is important because you might need to connect some of your
existing office equipment directly to the printer, and you might also need to change some fax settings
before you can fax successfully.

provider or vendor for further assistance.
Case C: Set up the printer with a PBX phone system or an ISDN line
If you are using either a PBX phone system or an ISDN converter/terminal adapter, make sure you do
the following:
●
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter/terminal adaptor, connect the printer to the
port that is designated for fax and phone use. Also, make sure that the terminal adapter is set to
the correct switch type for your country/region, if possible.
NOTE: Some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific phone equipment. For
example, you might have assigned one port for telephone and Group 3 fax and another port for
multiple purposes. If you have problems when connected to the fax/phone port of your ISDN
converter, try using the port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multi-combi"
or something similar.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, set the call waiting tone to "off."
NOTE: Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that is set to "on" by default. The
call waiting tone interferes with any fax transmission, and you cannot send or receive faxes with
the printer. Refer to the documentation that came with your PBX phone system for instructions
on how to turn off the call-waiting tone.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, dial the number for an outside line before dialing the fax
number.
●
Make sure you use the supplied cord to connect from the telephone wall jack to the printer. If
you do not, you might not be able to fax successfully. This special phone cord is different from
the phone cords you might already have in your home or office. If the supplied phone cord is too
short, you can purchase a longer 2-wire phone cord from your local electronics store and extend
it.
You might need to connect the supplied phone cord to the adapter provided for your country/
region.

4.
●
If you set up the printer to answer calls automatically, it answers all incoming calls and
receives faxes. The printer cannot distinguish between fax and voice calls in this case; if
you suspect the call is a voice call, you need to answer it before the printer answers the
call. To set up the printer to answer calls automatically, turn on the Auto Answer setting.
●
If you set up the printer to answer faxes manually, you must be available to respond in
person to incoming fax calls or the printer cannot receive faxes. To set up the printer to
answer calls manually, turn off the Auto Answer setting.
Run a fax test.
If you pick up the phone before the printer answers the call and hear fax tones from a sending fax
machine, you need to answer the fax call manually.
If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service
provider or vendor for further assistance.
Case F: Shared voice/fax line with voice mail
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, and you also subscribe to
a voice mail service through your telephone company, set up the printer as described in this section.
NOTE: You cannot receive faxes automatically if you have a voice mail service at the same phone
number you use for fax calls. You must receive faxes manually; this means you must be available to
respond in person to incoming fax calls. If you want to receive faxes automatically instead, contact
your telephone company to subscribe to a distinctive ring service, or to obtain a separate phone line
for faxing.

Now you need to decide how you want the printer to answer calls, automatically or manually:
●
If you set up the printer to answer calls automatically, it answers all incoming calls and
receives faxes. The printer cannot distinguish between fax and voice calls in this case; if
you suspect the call is a voice call, you need to answer it before the printer answers the
call. To set up the printer to answer calls automatically, turn on the Auto Answer setting.
●
If you set up the printer to answer faxes manually, you must be available to respond in
person to incoming fax calls or the printer cannot receive faxes. To set up the printer to
answer calls manually, turn off the Auto Answer setting.
Run a fax test.
If you pick up the phone before the printer answers the call and hear fax tones from a sending fax
machine, you need to answer the fax call manually.
If you use your phone line for voice, fax, and your computer dial-up modem, follow these directions to
set up your fax.

Test fax setup
You can test your fax setup to check the status of the printer and to make sure it is set up correctly for
faxing. Perform this test after you have completed setting up the printer for faxing. The test does the
following:
●
Tests the fax hardware
●
Verifies the correct type of phone cord is connected to the printer
●
Checks that the phone cord is plugged into the correct port
●
Checks for a dial tone
●
Checks for an active phone line
●
Tests the status of your phone line connection
The printer prints a report with the results of the test. If the test fails, review the report for information
on how to fix the problem and rerun the test.
To test fax setup via the printer control panel
1.
Set up the printer for faxing according to your particular home or office setup instructions.
2.
Make sure the ink cartridges are installed, and that full-size paper is loaded in the input tray
before starting the test.
3.
From the printer control panel, touch Setup.
4.
Touch Fax Setup.
5.
Touch Tools, and then touch Run Fax Test.
The printer displays the status of the test on the display and prints a report.
6.
Review the report.
●
If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax settings listed in
the report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or incorrect fax setting can cause
problems faxing.
